Henry Hoover is among the most popular vacuum cleaners in the UK, and today we are going to look at another of Henry’s siblings. Hetty Hoover is Henry’s sister and she is also a member of the Numatic family. Numatic has always put a lot of hard work into perfecting their brand and Hetty won’t disappoint you either.
Hetty is designed almost identically to Numatic Henry, with the only major difference being the colour (and the eyelashes). Hetty comes with a number of extra features and also has Eco technology, helping you consume less power and save money.
Despite her lower wattage, Hetty provides powerful suction thanks to her twin flow power motors. She can even switch between higher or lower power, depending on your cleaning needs. You might be surprised at how powerful and effective this little thing is. Read on as we go through the features and benefits of Hetty.

Features Of Hetty
Hetty is eco-friendly, energy-efficient and a great way to cut down the cost of cleaning your house. You can switch between the two power modes, low and high. On the ‘low’ mode, you can clean the floors and on the ‘high’ mode, you can clean carpets, rugs, etc.
The floor head comes with a new design and it offers great suction and power. It is incorporated with side cleaners to get right into the corners and keep your floors perfectly clean. You can operate the switch on the vacuum with your foot and don’t need to bend down for switching different modes. Changing modes while cleaning carpets and hard floors is a breeze.
Hetty comes with a 10-metre long power cord and it is easy to store it by winding it into the internal storage. The extension tube at the handle improves Hetty’s reach and enables you to clean hard to reach areas. The suction control panel gives you greater control over the amount of suction.

It is very easy to clean the stairs with Hetty, with the long reach wand and attachments there’s no need to try and balance her on each stair as you clean. Hetty works efficiently across all types of floors, and she works particularly well across the edges and it is capable of removing debris from the corners very well.
The overall suction of the machine is great too. When it comes to carpet cleaning, it works well but you might need to run it over the same spot a number of times to remove smaller particles. For larger particles on hard floors, you may have to lift the head up to suck up all the debris.
The world of vacuum cleaners is mostly filled with black and grey colours. Hetty stands out with her bright pink colour and smiling face. Hetty is a bagged vacuum and you will have to purchase additional bags, although these bags are priced reasonably and it is not difficult to find them.
Ease Of Use
The cable rewind function saves a lot of time and ensures the power cable doesn’t get tangled every time you use Hetty. You can also fold down the handle for storage, and adjust the wand for suction power too. Hetty’s shape and small size allow her to be easily stored without taking up too much room, and her wheels mean she will follow you around the house without much effort on your part.
Hetty comes with a Tritex filter. You can purchase separate odour-removing filters too. HepaFlo bags also work with Hetty as well. These bags are far more durable than the paper bags and they also hold the dust and debris very well.
Hetty uses Henry bags that are self-sealing and they can store up to five times intake as compared to conventional vacuums. You can use Hetty without the bags too but it will allow a lot of dust to escape into the air so it is not recommended.
